The article concerns the application of industrial robots (IR) in selected areas of logistics. In the article there are given premises, from the point of view of which it is worth to consider issues focused around robotics in the context of Logistics 4.0 (L4.0). For this purpose, the results of the research of scientific and business publications (desk research) are presented. In addition, the identification and classification of IR in the aspect of their use in L4.0 is given. Further, selected examples of IR that can be used in selected areas of logistics were identified. Next, an analytical model helping to assess the level of innovativeness of a group of solutions was presented, and finally, the innovativeness of the identified IR was assessed in terms of their inclusion among the machines that can be or are the subject of research in L4.0.Keywords: Logistics 4.0, AGV, LGV, AMR, industrial robot, mobile robot, robotics
